These '40 mark strasse' by The Shins chords also include lyrics.
As with the a lot of Port of Morrow, I've worked this out in about 20 minutes just playing and listening to the song. The rhythm is easy enough, and I've tried to line up the chords as best I can with (what I believe to be) the lyrics. As always, works best listening to the song! These should all be played in barre chord form. The F#m should definitely be played up at the 9th fret, sounds much better that way! I wasn't really sure about the instrumental break, with the sounds and bass over it, but I think it's Bm, D, E, D. Hope it all makes sense and helps you play - or at least attain a closer version of - this song! :D Intro C#m x 4 C#m Is it all so very simple E And horribly complex E You're suffering the thimble D And there's nothing coming next C#m Your mom smokes in the kitchen A Her voice a cutting drone E They're creeping out, you pass the bar D Your father's second home E That leaves you on your own C#m At nights I'd often watch you E Float across the ground E Out the gate to the motorway D What secrets have you found? C#m You had to know I wanted A Something from you then E Too young to know just what it was D Something more than a friend E Is that you at the end E) Well, you play in the street at night E) You blow like a broken kite E) My girl, you're giving up the fight G Are you gonna let these Americans E Put another dent in your life? C#m x2 C#m My mother says your dirty E They're gonna find you dead E But have you got that final chapter D Written in your head C#m Cause every single story A Is a story about love E Both the overflowing cup D And the painful lack thereof E You got the heart of a dove E) But, you play in the street at night E) You blow like a broken kite E) My girl, you're giving up the fight E) You have to lose all them childish notions G If you're gonna let these American boys E Put another dent in your life Instrumental break D x4 E) you play in the street at night E) You blow like a broken kite E) My girl, you're giving up the fight E) You have to lose all them childish notions G Or you're gonna let these Americans E Put another dent in your life
